If you’ve never had the balls to sneak into a party now is the perfect time to grow some because we’re crashing the MAC Le Disko, baby! MAC recently launched a limited edition collection of dazzling eyeshadows, liners and lip glosses that are definitely the life of the party. Sounds like fun, right?
Up for a little beauty challenge? I thought you’d be! It’s been a few days but we’re gonna bounce right along and have a little shower talk. I loooove showers! They’re extremely relaxing and refreshing for me. I literally wanted to cry the day our shower went out because it’s the best time of the day to really meditate and clear your mind. Somehow, I’ve managed to hold it together but I do miss my shower gels, body scrubs and co-washing. Some of my favorite shower products include:
Talk about right on time! MAC recently launched the Prep + Prime Fix+ Collection featuring 5 new flavors of the cult classic finishing spray that’s a staple in every makeup junkie’s routine. For a limited time, you can soothe, hydrate and refresh your skin with fresh new scents like cucumber and coconut. Check it out!
Since we were just talking about red lips I’m gonna keep the discussion going with a new red gloss that’s been growing on me. Now you know I don’t really do red lipstick but I really didn’t do red gloss. When I think of red lips I always think crisp, clean and matte. Red gloss always felt too ‘lax and messy for the effortlessly sexy vibe red lips give off. That is, until I came across the NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss.
Yes, matte lip lovers, there’s another new line of liquid lipsticks that’s bound to catch your eye! I’m sure you’re familiar with the new affordable indie brand, ColourPop, by now. They’re famous for their addicting cream shadows and lippie stix but they’ve since expanded to include blushes, highlighters, bronzers and now Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. That’s right liquid lipsticks! There’s a whopping 25 shades and they’re only 6 bucks a piece. Just $6!
There’s been sneak peeks and teases all over Instagram as well as Temptalia (she actually has reviews too!) but the line is finally set to launch today. At the time of this post (1:40 PM EST) the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks still aren’t up on the site but I expect to see them shortly. So just keep refreshing!
Will you be ordering any of the new ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks?
Since I gave you guys a peek at what’s on my vanity I thought I’d follow up with a quick tour of what’s inside my makeup organizer. Well organizers. It’s really just two acrylic drawers and drawer + organizer set I found for super cheap at Bed Bath and Beyond. They’ve been coming in pretty hand though! Naturally, my stash has outgrown my little homemade system but it still holds quite a lot of stuff.
In the top organizer, I have some of my special packaging MAC lipsticks on display with a few Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Voluptes and a Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in the mix. In the open sections, I keep all of my everyday essentials and current faves at the moment like:
- BB cream
The rest of the system is just drawer sets filled with different lipsticks and lip glosses that I sometimes like to switch up depending on my mood. Here’s the current set up:
Ready for your weekly pink pick me up? Me too! I never get tired of pink. Ever. I’m always stumbling across some new pink lipstick that I probably have a million variations of but still want anyway. Or forgetting about the ones I already have. It’s a bad habit!
There’s a new Urban Decay eyeshadow palette in town (other than Naked Smoky) that’s turning heads and shading eyes. It’s the new and limited edition Wende’s Contraband palette that’s available now exclusively at Sephora. Here’s the scoop:
Isn’t it fun digging up old faves from your stash? I’ve been doing that a lot lately. It’s like shopping but better–you don’t have to spend anything! Not too long ago, I spotted my good ol Chanel Les Beiges powder chilling in my face drawer and decided to pull it out and put it to use. I could use a small luxury here and there. Couldn’t you? (more…)
Another day, another line of matte lipsticks! Maybelline has doubled down on the matte lip market this season with 10 new shades of Color Sensational Matte Lipsticks and a brand spankin’ new line of ColorBlur Cream Matte Lip Pencils. A girl can never have too many matte lipsticks, right?
